    The original seed parent for the Pink Perfection lily strain was lost in a Willamette Valley flood. The bulbs sold on the market today are far removed from the parent that produced the much admired pink and fine inflorescence that a buyer would expect when looking at the photographs (and even the descriptions) used by vendors today. Buyers are disappointed when they receive bulbs that bloom almost white or just a light pink mostly around the margins. It would be wonderful if a breeder could come up with a new parent that would produce a stable, reliable strain like the old 'Pink Perfection'.

    Pink Perfection is sold as a strain so expect some variation in color. I was fortunate and got one that was quite dark pink.

    So far, I have been quite disappointed with this strain. Out of 25 bulbs, only one plant produced flowers that are noticeably pink. All of them are very tall (6 feet) in their first year and very lanky and floppy, in spite of being planted in full, all day sun. Fragrance is evident only at night.
